* Creator/NeilGaiman's ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' is a case of one ghetto crossing into another. Namely it was a comic book that merged elements from superhero stories, horror comics (Creator/ECComics) and with a dollop of Creator/WillEisner's ComicBook/TheSpirit to tell a modern fantasy story that was as popular and influential as the works of Creator/TerryPratchett, Creator/LewisCarroll and Creator/JRRTolkien. It caused quite a fuss when one of its issues won a Hugo Award, and the rules were changed to bar graphic novels. Gaiman's book also attracted attention from literary readers such as Creator/NormanMailer, Creator/SamuelDelany and others.

* ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' is based on a HighFantasy novel that, while respected, would still fall into the ghetto. By the time the movies came out, they were worldwide successes - achieving unanimous praise among audiences and critics alike. Put it this way; before they came along, big budget fantasy epics just weren't done. After their success (though ''Film/HarryPotter'' deserves some of the credit too) - ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'', ''Series/GameOfThrones'' - and a whole crop of others. Likewise other remakes of Disney properties such as ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' and ''{{Film/Maleficent}}'' directly follow the style.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' tried to do this. It ended up with {{Magical Native American}}s, a serious case of ShipTease that ended with Chakotay choosing another girl out of the blue, and using physics terms whose meaning the writers either didn't know or [[TheyJustDidntCare made up as they went along]].

* ''Film/TheBirthOfANation'' brought cinema out of the ghetto of carnivals and side-show attractions and cement it as a mass-medium greater than theatre, music hall and the circus, leading to a rush of investment in new productions by people seeking to make money in the movie business, and indirectly inventing Hollywood. Of course, its glorification of the UsefulNotes/KuKluxKlan is indefensible, but as critic Dave Kehr noted, it was where movies as an art and a business truly began.
